I have been thinking about dipping my toe into the blogging pool for some time now. But I have been too afraid, sitting at the edge, unable to wade in.
I have always loved baking. I grew up in Greece and my mother was constantly cooking. She made a lot of traditional Greek dishes, but also had many US and UK baking books. She was always trying unusual recipes and made incredibly elaborate desserts (my birthday cake was usually a hazelnut praline torte with spun sugar decorations).
I moved to the UK as a student many years ago. I remember the day I moved into my first flat with a college friend I managed to bake a cake before most of the boxes had been unpacked.
These days I spend an indecent amount of time reading through cooking and baking blogs. I have a ridiculous number of cookbooks (some through work, most through my Amazon addiction). I am an enthusiastic but foolhardy baker, hampered somewhat by my complete inability to stick to a recipe. I will chronicle my baking (mis)adventures on this blog.
